It sounds like you're describing Ollie vs Pop.

Ollie = off the tail as you now know
Pop = Evenly off both feet

As far as which is better, it's situational, but you can use either in most cases (there are always exceptions - but for most basic rail tricks you can use either). I use pop most of the time and ollies situationally, but I know some friends who only use ollies and some who are more like me and mix it up.

As far as other tips for popping/ollies onto rails here's a big one...

You don't need to ollie/pop onto the start of the rail

Aim to land about a foot or two down the rail and you'll notice that this spot is actually either equal to or lower than your actual take-off.

Most people wrongly assume they need a ton of ollie or pop to hit street style rails and boxes, but in reality everyone lands a foot or two down the rail so height isn't a big deal.

td.1000 sorry for being stupidly obvious, but practice your ollies on the flat before trying them out on features. you want to avoid going on a box/rail all wobbly or not getting enough height and going down chin first.

jboards Ollie onto it. Which is I'm guessing what you're talking about.

Watch this video. If you already know how to ollie you can skip to 1:45 and it will show you how he ollies onto these features

How to jump onto an feature

I recently started boarding ( just over a month riding ), but have been going quite often 2-3 times a week, 2-3 hours each time. It has all been on a indoor slope, and likely will be for the foreseeable future ( hence the name fridge kid ). I've got the hang of ride on features ( i.e. where the ramp leads all the way up to the fun box/pipe, so you can just ride over it as normal ).

The next step then is to stick a feature where you have to 'pop ' onto the obstacle. My question is how exactly you jump. Do you lift the front of the board of jump off the tail end like a diving board, or do you jump equally with both feet?

Any other tips for sticking these kind of obstacles?
